Beyoncé Ends World Tour On High Note
The closing show of Beyonce‘s 49-date, six-month long, “The Formation World Tour” took place at MetLife Stadium on Friday, October 7, 2016 in East Rutherford, New Jersey. It was really something special, including surprise appearances from Serena Williams, Jay-Z and Kendrick Lamar.
After coming out to a “Give it up for my man!” introduction, Jay was on stage for just a couple of minutes, performing his verse on “Drunk in Love,” playfully sparring with and hugging his wife. Lamar, on the other hand, performed all of “Freedom,” delivering his verses and smiling proudly alongside Beyonce at the end of the song. Serena, who came out early in the show, was mostly a symbolic presence, dancing haughtily for a moment before leaving the stage.)
She engaged the crowd throughout the entire show, thanking them repeatedly, touching the hands of the fans in the pits on either side of the stage. She was equally gracious with her performers and crew, hugging each of her dancers in turn at the end of the night and thanking everyone who worked on the show — “every cameraman, every light technician, the sound crew, all the wardrobe people”.
